Love your Neighbor

So most of you know that I don't really attend church these days. I learned that Sunday, a letter was read over the pulpit in all LDS wards around the country asking members to write their Senators urging them to support the Federal Marriage Amendment Act. The LDS church has also joined the Christian Coalition in a signed statement of support.

I can't find the words to say exactly how I feel about this. It saddens me. If I hadn't chosen to stop going to church by this time, this would have been very strong motivation to stop.

I agree with what this blogger has to say on the matter, and feel they say it very well:
Exponent II: Making Sense of Sunday

The Universe is Alive

James and I have been talking a lot about spiritual fulfillment lately.

We both don't get all our spiritual needs met at church. So where do we pick up the slack?

James gets many of his spiritual needs met helping people who need it; that's everyday work for him. Oh, I remember helping people! My needs used to get met at Northwest, where I would have wonderful spiritual experiences regularly. The credit union.... not so much. I've been gardening more, which feels wonderful, and spending more quiet moments alone or with trees, but still, my spirit needs fuel. *sigh*

So, my question is: Where are you getting your spiritual needs met?
